Exterminate It! Antimalware


Known threats:700,085 Last Update:August 24, 10:09


I purchased Exterminate It! yesterday, as a last ditch effort from having to scratch load an XP Pro workstation, which was infected with the WOWfx Trojan.

In short, your product eliminated all malware on the system. It was the only commercially available product that not only detected the problems, but eliminated them.

For the record, I attempted using:

The registered versions of Spyware Doctor, XSoft Antispyware, CA Antispyware and the free version of Adaware, which all recognized, but failed to clean my system.

Outstanding product.

  • Hijacking valuable private information (credit card numbers, passwords, PIN codes, etc.)
  • Directing all your Web searches to the same unwanted or malicious sites.
  • Dramatically slowing down your computer.
  • Gaining total control of your PC to spread viruses and trojans and send out spam.
